Same with the Santa Clara store. If you're willing to spend more than $1,
they have some good deals under $10. I think I paid $5 for a copy of a 
one-version-back Cisco Internet Routing Architectures book, and not much
more for a one-version back IP Routing With Cisco Routers (or some such)
"Black Book."

I figure since I"m messing with a router that's older than the book,
the book probably covers the router at least well enough to learn.
